Better Science through Better Mentoring

Submitted by Kris Boone, boone.3@osu.edu

Strong mentorship has been linked to enhanced mentee productivity, self-efficacy, career satisfaction, and is an important predictor of the academic success of scientists and engineers in training. The Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER) has developed a curriculum based on proven mentorship development curricula.

Federal funding agencies are calling for evidence-based development of mentoring skills as an important component of successful grant proposals. By participating in this workshop faculty will develop and/or enhance their mentoring skills and receive resources and materials to support effective mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral trainees.

This type of preparation is required for some faculty who plan to submit nominations for the 2020 President’s Postdoctoral Scholars Program (See nominating faculty eligibility here).

 

Date:  March 18, 2018

Time:  8 AM – 12 PM

Location:  Room 126 in the Research Services Building

Attendance is limited to 30 faculty members from any discipline although many of the case studies come from STEM fields.
